England vs Ireland ODIs 2023 Schedule, Squad, H2H & Live Streaming: The England cricket team is set to host Ireland in a three-match One-Day International (ODI) series starting on Wednesday, September 20th, 2023.
As the reigning world champions in the 50-over format, England will enter the series looking to continue their recent success. They are coming off an emphatic 3-1 ODI series victory against New Zealand on home soil.
Despite their stature as one of the best ODI teams globally, England has named a rather inexperienced 13-man squad for the Ireland series. Zak Crawley, who is making a comeback to the ODI setup, will lead the squad.
The selectors have also added former Test captain Joe Root to the team for the first ODI match. This presents an opportunity for Root to rediscover his form in the 50-over format ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 to be held in India.
Apart from Root, England has not included any players from their preliminary 15-man World Cup roster for this Ireland series. Instead, they have opted to give chances to some uncapped players like Sam Hain, Jamie Smith, and George Scrimshaw.
On the other hand, Ireland, ranked 13th in ODIs, has announced a full-strength 15-member contingent. Opening batsman Paul Stirling will lead the team. Key players like Andrew Balbirnie, George Dockrell, Josh Little, Andy McBrine, Harry Tector, and Lorcan Tucker are also part of the Irish squad.
According to the schedule, the England vs Ireland ODI series 2023 will start with the first match at Headingley Cricket Ground in Leeds on September 20th.
The action will then shift to Trent Bridge Cricket Ground in Nottingham for the second ODI on September 23rd.
The two teams will travel to Bristol for the third and final match to be held at County Ground on September 26th.
With World Cup preparation in focus for both teams, fans can expect a thrilling contest between the world champions and the spirited Irish side when they face off in this three-match ODI series starting on Wednesday.
